Users Who Logged This Wine

Color: dark black/red with barely a hint of browning at the edges

Nose: Whoa, freakin' whoa. This wine is incredibly. Even though the provenance of this bottle was suspect, it came through perfect. Red and black fruit on the nose with some vanilla, toast and cedar. Beautiful open nose, some plum.

Palate: This is definitely one of the top three wines that I have ever had. It sits next to the 2001 Georis Clos des Moutons and the 1998 Lafite-Rothschild. What an incredibly powerful and elegant wine that has possibly the greatest mouthfeel that I've ever tasted; it's like black velvet, heavy a d draping but sooo smooth. Great grip of silky tannins balanced with perfect acidity. Moth has cherry, cocoa, slight leather and dust, vanilla toast and some plum with a finish that lasts 1.5+ minutes, if you can wait that long before another sip. I would give this 6 stars if I knew how to write the code!

Whoops, meant to write 1998 Lafite Rothschild. What a typo! (Now corrected)

At first, I thought; oh boy here we go again an over priced over oaked California Cab... I opened the bottle "02" and was totally disappointed, just lack of fruit soooo wound up with oak etc..
So, I said I'll just put it aside and see what happens...

So I opened another one of my favorite wines "Paradigm" which, by the way was yummy, anyway I was out of town and where I was staying didn't have much wine on hand so I thought I would re-visit the BV GDL the next day with out any type of vacu vin pump etc...and THANK GOD I did!!
It had opened up beautifully , just a brilliant bowl of black cherries, warm touches of vanilla. mmmmm....

I tell you what after what I had originally read about BV via the Wine Spectator a few years ago I really wasn't expecting much. But boy was I mislead,

Bravo BV... Glad to have you back!!

PS: I think the Wine Spectator might want to re-review this wine again... this time with an open opinion.

Cheers!
